About This Class

Drawing and painting a human figure has always been a difficult but gratifying challenge for artists of all levels. Nudes have been the subject of interest for ages.

Since centuries, artists have treated human body as a work of art by God Himself. Ancient sculptures and artworks from India to Europe have worshiped the nude form.

Understanding the nude is relevant in today's art as well, even for drawing clothed people!

In this course, we will learn:

1. Basic proportions, body types, bones and joints

2. Capturing the movement

3. Understanding the female face

4. Doing a finished sketch of a female nude - back

5. Doing finished sketches of female nude - front

6. Doing an oil painting of a female nude.
